Jim Fouratt, 75, a resident of New York City, had his simple wish for a new bicycle granted, thanks to the New York chapter of national nonprofit Twilight Wish Foundation. Jim relies on his bike to navigate the city, to get to his doctor appointments and as a way to keep fit.  Recently, his bike was stolen and, because he lives on a fixed income, he couldn't afford to replace it on his own. Jim has a long history of community involvement in many issues including the anti-war movement and the gay liberation movement. He was nominated by his social worker who wrote that “a new bicycle is a vital necessity that will also help revitalize his spirit.” His wish was granted on Saturday, November 19, 2016.
